An identifier, which together with the ORGANISATION CODE / ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER of the issuer, uniquely identifies a PATIENT PATHWAY.
This is a specific type of the attribute ACTIVITY IDENTIFIER.
Where a pathway is initiated by a SERVICE REQUEST using the Choose and Book system, the PATIENT PATHWAY will be uniquely identified by the Unique Booking Reference Number (UBRN) of the first referral and the ORGANISATION CODE of Choose and Book which is X09.
Where the pathway is initiated by some other method, the PATIENT PATHWAY IDENTIFIER will be allocated by the Organisation receiving the SERVICE REQUEST which together with that Organisation's ORGANISATION CODE / ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER will uniquely identify the PATIENT PATHWAY.
